Spanish Segunda División B football club Marbella FC has unveiled ambitious plans for a new stadium.
The club and City Council have presented the new football stadium as an “urban jewel” that will be a “symbol of the city.”
The new facility will have a capacity for 18,000 spectators, with 2,000 underground parking spaces, in addition to a commercial and hotel area with swimming pools.
It will be built where the club’s current home, Municipal Antonio Lorenzo Cuevas stadium, is currently located and will not have a running track.
Óscar Ribot, CEO of Best of You, the company that manages the club, said that since arriving at Marbella FC in November 2018, their top priority was for the city to have a new stadium, which is also an “icon of the city next to Puerto Banús” and a place that “everyone looks at with admiration”.
Best of You has presented the project, which now needs “both the City Council and the political parties to initiate the appropriate procedures” for it to become a reality, Ribot said.
The mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, stressed that it is “a city project” that she has described as “emblematic and serious.”
